High Pressure Process (HPP)

Tail meat does not come any fresher, sweeter or easier! Tails are uncooked, and raw with no shell, all tail meat!.

Raw shucked Maine lobster tail meat is made using a state-of-the-art processing technology called UHP.  High pressure  extracts the meat from the shell and leaves the tender texture and delicate flavor of the tail meat intact.

High-pressure processing separates the tail meat from the shell. Then the tail meat is hand-picked from the shell in one piece. Lobster tails are vacuum packed and cryogenically frozen in a CO2 freezing tunnel at -80C to -90C for optimal freshness. 

Our hand shucked lobster tails are more convenient because we do the shucking for you. And since they are fresh frozen you can prepare them anytime.

Cooking Suggestions

Shucked Lobster Tails
Shucked lobster tails cooked on a cast iron pan by Hooked On BBQ

Slow defrost tails overnight in the refrigerator before cooking. Cook before consuming. DO NOT overcook. Simply thaw tails and either steam, butter poach or try roasting them in the oven. Serve with lemon slices and fresh drawn butter.


  1. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pot or deep skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Add a pinch of sea salt.
  2. Place a steamer basket over water and add defrosted tails.
  3. Cover and steam 5 to 6 minutes until meat is just opaque.

Oven Roast:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place thawed lobster tails on a sheet pan or baking dish.
  3. Drizzle with oil, butter or your favorite marinade.    
  4. Place in oven and cook for about 10 minutes.

Butter Poach:

  1. In a saucepan, bring 2-3 tbs. of water to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Whisk in 1 tbs. butter when butter melts add another piece. Continuing adding butter pieces— 1 cup or two sticks total. (Do not let the butter come to a boil, or the butter will separate.)
  3. Add defrosted tails. Poach for 3-4 minutes and turn tails in butter mixture and poach for another 3-4 minutes.

Our shucked lobster tails make a beautiful presentation. Use our tail meat for over-the-top lobster rolls, or slice into medallions to top a salad,  pasta dish,  or your signature lobster dish, like Lobster Fra Diavolo. Add a filet mignon or New York strip steaks for the perfect surf and turf!

Well worth it

Bought the unshelled lobster tails. The order came timely and well packed. Put them in the refrigerator and by the next morning they were defrosted. We steamed all five and they really didn't need any butter. We ate 3 1/2 and with the left over made a lobster salad for my wife. Lobster Anywhere is now my new go to place for lobster.
